TEHRAN, Jul. 27 (MNA) – Iraqi President Barham Salih showed reaction to an agreement made between Iraq and United States on Monday regarding the exit of US forces from Iraq.

In a tweet on Tue., Iraqi President Barham Salih reacted to the US-Iraq agreement on the withdrawal of US troops from Iraq and wrote that the results of Iraq-US strategic talk are important for achieving stability and strengthening Iraqi sovereignty.
